2014 HIC and PIT Data Submission


I. Submitting 2014 HIC and PIT Data to HUD

Continuums of Care (CoCs) can begin entering their 2014 Housing Inventory Count (HIC) and Point-in-Time (PIT) count data into HUD’s Homelessness Data Exchange (HDX) web portal on Tuesday, April 1, 2014. CoCs must submit their 2014 HIC and PIT count data by Wednesday, April 30, 2014, 12:00 am (midnight) EDT. Meeting the HIC and PIT data submission deadline is a factor considered by HUD in the annual Continuum of Care Program Competition.   

Submitting the HIC and the PIT data in HDX is a two-step process, and both steps must be submitted on time for your submission to be considered complete:
  • HIC data must be submitted via the HIC Reporting Status page
  • PIT data must be submitted via the PIT Reporting Status page
II. 2014 HIC and PIT Data Submission Guidance
The 2014 HIC and PIT of Homeless Persons Data Collection Guidance resource is now available on HUD’s OneCPD Resource Exchange. This document provides guidance on entering 2014 HIC and PIT data via the HDX. In the next two weeks HUD will also provide a pre-recorded webinar that highlights the 2014 HIC and PIT data submission requirements as outlined in the guidance above.

For more information about the HIC and PIT, visit the PIT and HIC Guides, Tools, and Webinars page. If you have questions about the HIC or PIT, please submit them at the OneCPD Ask a Question page. On Step 2, select HDX: Homelessness Data Exchange (Including PIT, HIC, and AHAR) from the My question is related to drop down.


Updates to the Annual Performance Reports in e-snaps – Change in Reporting Requirements/Due Dates

Updates to the Annual Performance Reports in e-snaps – Change in Reporting Requirements/Due Dates


HUD is in the process of making updates to the Annual Performance Reports (APRs) in e-snaps. Currently, the APR in e-snaps is only configured for recipients to report on Supportive Housing Program (SHP), Shelter Plus Care (S+C), and Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy (SRO) grants.  

With this e-snaps update, HUD will add the APR to the FY 2012 grants to enable recipients to identify as a CoC program. Recipients with a project funded in FY 2012 with APR due dates on or before April 1, 2014 must not enter data into the current APR in e-snaps (CoC Full Annual Performance Report) because if they do, they will be required to enter the data again once the updates go live in e-snaps. HUD will send another listserv when e-snaps is updated to inform recipients when you can begin entering data and will provide an updated guidebook to walk recipients through the changes. Grants funded prior to the FY 2012 CoC Competition should continue to use the current APR form in e-snaps (CoC Full Annual Performance Report).

The updates will help recipients with their reporting by:
  1. Bringing forward the correct grant number assigned to your grant in the FY 2012 grant award process;
     
  2. Updating the budgets to mirror the budgets in the FY 2012 Project Application; and
     
  3. Revising Q3 to allow recipients to align their APR reporting with how their projects were funded in FY 2012 (i.e., permanent supportive housing or rapid re-housing).
HUD does not anticipate changing any data collection and reporting requirements for client-level data. Therefore, no change is required for recipients’ HMIS systems to generate the report or for the APR Generation Tool – recipients may continue to run their reports and check their data with their existing tools.  

HUD anticipates releasing this update and supporting guidance by the first week of April. If you are a recipient of any FY 2012 grant with an APR due date on or before April 1, 2014, please contact your field office to request an extension of the submission deadline. 

For additional information and resources on the APR, please visit the APR Guides, Tools, and Webinars page on the OneCPD Resource Exchange. If you have any questions about the APR, please visit OneCPD Ask a Question. To submit a question, select "e-snaps" from the "My question is related to" dropdown list on Step 2 of the question submission process.

Preventing and Addressing Tuberculosis Among People Experiencing Homelessness

Tuberculosis (TB) is a serious health concern for people experiencing homelessness and those working with homeless populations. TB rates are 10 times higher for people experiencing homelessness. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that over half of the patients involved in TB outbreaks between 2010 – 2012 did not have a place to call home.

The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) has partnered with the CDC and the National Health Care for the Homeless Council to release a fact sheet titled Preventing & Addressing Tuberculosis Among People Experiencing Homelessness. The document explains why TB is a concern, what service providers can do, and how to find helpful resources on TB.

The OneCPD Homelessness Assistance Programs page provides information on assisting people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. It contains program guidance and homelessness resources for Federal Agencies, government agencies, Continuum of Care organizations, homeless service providers, TA providers, persons experiencing homelessness, and other stakeholders.

Data-Based Planning for Effective Prevention: State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroups
Data-Based Planning for Effective Prevention: State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroups
Research about prevention demonstrates the important role of data in informing efforts to reduce problems related to substance use and mental health disorders. SAMHSA funds State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroups (SEOWs) to assist states, jurisdictions, tribal entities, and communities in adopting and implementing the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF). SAMHSA's SPF provides a structure for the selection, funding, implementation, and evaluation of prevention programming.
SEOWs comprise a network of people and organizations that bring data analytics to prevention. The overall goal for SEOWs is to use data to drive and enhance state and community decisions regarding mental and/or substance use disorder prevention programs, practices, and policies. Another goal is to promote positive behavioral and mental health over the lifespan. Guided by the steps of SAMHSA's SPF, SEOWs examine, interpret, and employ data to steer prevention planning and decisionmaking.
Data-Based Planning for Effective Prevention: State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroups presents the key principles and core expectations of SEOWs.
